After watching last night's game three between the final two teams Boston and LA I felt like Boston was not executing properly their complete attack for the win. Garnett and Pierce need to get their game going early on and keep it pumped throughout the night. They were both struggling and were only able to bring in 19 points total. Well let's see what game four will bring.
LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Lakers, led by Kobe Bryant's 36 points, climbed back into the NBA Finals series with an 87-81 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 3 Tuesday.
The Lakers, 9-0 at home in the post-season, avoided falling into an 0-3 series hole. Game 4 will be Thursday in Los Angeles.
Sasha Vujacic came off the bench to score 20 for the Lakers, while Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom scored just four and nine points, respectively.
Boston was led by Ray Allen's 25 points. Allen hit five of seven three-point attempts. Kevin Garnett managed just 13 points -- missing 15 of his 21 shots from the field -- and 12 rebounds. Paul Pierce was even worse, missing 12 of 14 shots and finishing with just six points.
The Celtics have lost six of eight road games in the post-season.
